Message from Mr. Sherman
I started the week by having an amazing professional development session with our teachers through the Board of Jewish Education and Jewish Educators Assembly. As we close the week I am now the dad to three children. Laura, Michael, Gabe and I welcome into our immediate family Amelia Jane Sherman. Born on Tuesday, Feb. 17th, the 28th day of Shevat, Amelia is such a treasured love. Laura and I look forward to introducing her to Judaism through our wonderful Am Yisrael community. Amelia’s Abba will be in and out of Northfield the next couple of weeks. Rest assured, thanks to our clergy and staff, team of educators, class parents and our Youth Boards, we have programs galore and can’t wait to continue creating wonderful Jewish experiences with our students and their families. Please be sure to RSVP for these upcoming programs as they are sure to be great! A program that involves our ENTIRE Am Yisrael community are our Purim contests, activities, scavenger hunt, etc.: Wednesday, March 4th beginning at 4:15 p.m.; dinner @ $5.00 per person begins at 6:15 p.m. and Megillah Madness will be very unique from 6:45 p.m.-7:45 p.m. Costumes are strongly encouraged for all ages. Fun will be a given! Finally, Mazal Tov to our SJS Zayin student Ella Levi, her parents Becky Levi and Meni Levi and her sister Noa. Ella will be called to the Torah this Shabbat as a Bat Mitzvah. Shabbat Shalom!
